Diplomatic protocol

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The diplomatic protocol consists of regulations that describe the procedure for state visits , but also the dress code , seating arrangements , etc.

In diplomacy , intergovernmental processes are subject to various rules that serve the purpose of avoiding disputes and creating a pleasant atmosphere for political negotiations and avoiding misunderstandings . Many a diplomatic incident was a (possibly welcome) occasion for a military conflict .

The offices and offices of the heads of state and government as well as the foreign ministries of most countries have their own protocol departments that deal exclusively with the diplomatic protocol and the protocol order of precedence ( precedence or precedence ).

The state chancelleries of the German federal states also have protocol departments.
